Permissions and Alternative Format Requests
To request permission to reprint material from a Broadview publication, please direct your request to:
515-815 1st St. SW
Calgary, AB, Canada
Tel: (403) 232-1443 extension 221
Fax: (403) 233-0001
Before requesting permission from Broadview please check that the item in question is indeed something that we and/or the author are likely to hold copyright for (see below).
Photocopies / Coursepacks: The standard fee for photocopying copyright material from Broadview books is 12 cents per student per page. In Canada, Access Copyright handles requests for permission to photocopy for course use, etc. When requesting permission from Broadview to reprint for classroom use, please provide the name of the course, the semester for which the request is being made, and the number of students. Please note that the fee for photocopying applies each time a course is offered.
Posting on websites: The standard fee for posting on a limited-use website is the same as for photocopying material for the students: 10 cents per student per original book page. When requesting permission from Broadview to post materials for classroom use, please provide the name of the course, the semester for which the request is being made, and the number of students with access to the website.
Books, magazines, etc: If permission is being requested to reprint material from a Broadview publication in another book, or in a magazine or other publication, please be sure to include details such as title, author(s)/editor(s), ISBN, and page numbers of the Broadview publication from which you wish to reprint, and title, author(s)/editor(s), projected date of publication, price, projected page length of the volume in which the work is to be reprinted, and projected print-run.
Permission for material that has been reprinted from another source in a Broadview publication: Please be sure to check the acknowledgements page of the Broadview publication from which you wish to reprint before submitting your request. If you wish to obtain permission to reprint, copy, or post on a website material that has been reprinted in a Broadview publication but originally published elsewhere, permission should be obtained from the copyright holder if the material is in copyright; no permission is required if the work is in the public domain, and if the material includes no additional text originating in the Broadview publication (introduction, headnotes, explanatory notes, etc.). If the request to reprint does include such additional material originating in the Broadview publication, then permission is required both from the original copyright holder and from Broadview.
